And in England, and I was sure in America, they loved animals. Hurst arranged for him to record a demo and helped him get a record deal.

Over the next two years, Stevens recorded and toured with an eclectic group of artists ranging from Jimi Hendrix to Engelbert Humperdinck.

He was considered a fresh-faced teen star, placing several single releases in the British pop music charts. In August , he went on the air with other recording artists who had benefited from the station to mourn its closure.

Forty years after he recorded the first demo of the song, it earned him back-to-back ASCAP "Songwriter of the Year" awards, in and During this time Stevens began to question aspects of his life and spirituality.

He later said, "to go from the show business environment and find you are in hospital, getting injections day in and day out, and people around you are dying, it certainly changes your perspective.

I got down to thinking about myself. It seemed almost as if I had my eyes shut. He took up meditation , yoga , and metaphysics ; [43] read about other religions ; and became a vegetarian.

The lack of success of Stevens' second album mirrored a difference of personal tastes in musical direction and a growing resentment of producer Mike Hurst's attempts to re-create another album like that of his debut, with heavy-handed orchestration , and over-production, [31] rather than the folk rock sound Stevens was attempting to produce.

He admits having purposefully sabotaged his own contract with Hurst, making outlandishly expensive orchestral demands and threatening legal action, which resulted in his goal: release from his contract with Deram Records , a sub-label of Decca Records.

Upon regaining his health at home after his release from the hospital, Stevens recorded some of his newly written songs on his tape recorder and played his changing sound for a few new record executives.

After hiring agent Barry Krost, who had arranged for an audition with Chris Blackwell of Island Records , Blackwell offered him a "chance to record [his songs] whenever and with whomever he liked and, more importantly to Cat, however he liked".

Around this time, Stevens had a catalogue of new songs that reflected his new perspective on what he wanted to bring to the world with his music. His previous work had sold at home in the UK, but Stevens was still relatively unknown by the public across the Atlantic.

Stevens began work on Mona Bone Jakon , a folk rock based album. Producer Paul Samwell-Smith paired Stevens with guitarist Alun Davies , who was at that time working as a session musician.

Davies was the more experienced veteran of two albums which had already begun to explore the emerging genres of skiffle and folk rock music.

Davies was also thought a perfect fit with Stevens in particular for his "fingerwork" on the guitar, harmonising and his backing vocals.

They originally met just to record Mona Bone Jakon , [45] but soon developed a friendship. Davies, like Stevens, was a perfectionist, [46] appearing at all sound checks to be sure that all the equipment and sound were prepared for each concert.

Their friendship continued, however, and, when Stevens re-emerged as Yusuf Islam after 27 years, Davies appeared again performing at his side and has remained there.

The record, with a madrigal sound unlike most music played on pop radio, with sounds of djembes and bass in addition to Stevens' and Davies' guitars, reached number 8 in the UK.

Mona Bone Jakon was an early example of the solo singer-songwriter album format that was becoming popular for other artists as well. Rolling Stone magazine compared its popularity with that of Elton John 's Tumbleweed Connection , saying it was played "across the board, across radio formats".

Mona Bone Jakon was the precursor for Stevens' international breakthrough album, Tea for the Tillerman , which became a Top 10 Billboard hit. Within six months of its release, it had sold over , copies, attaining gold record status in the United Kingdom and the United States.

The combination of Stevens' new folk rock style and accessible lyrics which spoke of everyday situations and problems, mixed with the beginning of spiritual questions about life, remained in his music from then on.

After the end of his relationship with D'Arbanville, Stevens noted the effect it had on writing his music, saying, "Everything I wrote while I was away was in a transitional period and reflects that.

Like Patti. A year ago we split; I had been with her for two years. What I write about Patti and my family I learn the meanings of my songs late Having established a signature sound, Stevens enjoyed a string of successes over the following years.

When interviewed on a Boston radio station, Stevens said about Teaser and the Firecat :. I get the tune and then I just keep on singing the tune until the words come out from the tune.

It's kind of a hypnotic state that you reach after a while when you keep on playing it where words just evolve from it. So you take those words and just let them go whichever way they want Funny, that was in Spain, I went there alone, completely alone, to get away from a few things.

And I was dancin' on the rocks there Really, it was so fantastic. And the moon was bright, ya know, and I started dancin' and singin' and I sang that song and it stayed.

It's just the kind of moment that you want to find when you're writin' songs. For seven months from to Stevens was romantically linked to popular singer Carly Simon while both were produced by Samwell-Smith.

During that time both wrote songs for and about one another. He reciprocated in his song to her, after their romance, entitled, "Sweet Scarlet".

His next album, Catch Bull at Four , released in , was his most rapidly successful album in the United States, reaching gold record status in 15 days and holding the number one position for three weeks on the Billboard and fifteen weeks at number one in the Australian ARIA Charts.

Although the sales of the album indicated Stevens' popularity, the album did not produce any real hits, with the exception of the single "Sitting", which charted at number Catch Bull at Four was Platinum certified in Among the songs were " Where Do the Children Play?

After his religious conversion in the late s, Stevens stopped granting permission for his songs to be used in films.

However, almost 20 years later, in , the film Rushmore received his permission to use his songs " Here Comes My Baby " and "The Wind", showing a new willingness on his part to release his music from his Western "pop star" days.

In , "Don't Be Shy" was used in the film Mr. The following year, "Father and Son" was used in the closing scene of the film Guardians of the Galaxy Vol.

Subsequent releases in the s also did well on the charts and in ongoing sales, although they did not touch the success he had from to It differed in several respects: entirely written by Stevens, he dropped his band and produced the record without the assistance of Samwell-Smith, who had played a large role in catapulting him to fame.

With the exception of some guitar on the title track and " I Dream", [63] he played keyboard instruments throughout the album.

One side of Foreigner was continuous, much different from the radio-friendly pop tunes fans had come to expect. In November he performed side two of the album at the Aquarius Theater in Hollywood, with a pre-arranged uninterrupted quadraphonic simulcast on the ABC network.

The show was entitled the "Moon and Star" concert. This performance did include his band, but they were all but overshadowed by an orchestra. The album produced a couple of singles including "The Hurt", but did not reach the heights he had once enjoyed.

The follow-up to Foreigner was Buddha and the Chocolate Box , largely a return to the instrumentation and styles employed in Teaser and the Firecat and Tea for the Tillerman.

Stevens' next album was the concept album Numbers , a less successful departure for him. In April , his Izitso album updated his pop rock and folk rock style with the extensive use of synthesisers , [64] giving it a more synthpop style.

This is one of the few music videos that Stevens made, other than simple videos of concert performances. His final original album under the name Cat Stevens was Back to Earth , released in late , which was also the first album produced by Samwell-Smith since his peak in single album sales in the early s.

Several compilation albums were released before and after he stopped recording. After Stevens left Decca Records they bundled his first two albums together as a set, hoping to ride the commercial tide of his early success; later his newer labels did the same, and he himself released compilations.

The most successful of the compilation albums was the Greatest Hits which has sold over 4 million copies in the United States.

Stevens said, "I thought, music for God? I'd never heard that before — I'd heard of music for money, music for fame, music for personal power, but music for God!

If you save me I will work for you. This brush with death intensified his long-held quest for spiritual truth. He had looked into " Buddhism , Zen , I Ching , numerology , tarot cards , and astrology ".

During the time he was studying the Qur'an, Stevens began to identify more and more with the story of Joseph , a man bought and sold in the market place, which is how he said he had increasingly felt within the music business.

And if you listen to my music and lyrics, like "Peace Train" and "On The Road To Find Out", it clearly shows my yearning for direction and the spiritual path I was travelling.

Stevens formally converted to the Muslim faith on 23 December , taking the name Yusuf Islam in Yusuf is the Arabic rendition of the name Joseph; he stated that he "always loved the name Joseph" and was particularly drawn to the story of Joseph in the Qur'an.

They have one son and four daughters and nine grandchildren; [76] a second son died in infancy. Following his conversion, Islam abandoned his musical career for nearly two decades.

In , he said that when he became a Muslim in , the Imam at his mosque told him that it was fine to continue as a musician, as long as the songs were morally acceptable, but others were saying that "it was all prohibited", and he decided to avoid the question by ceasing to perform.

You come to a point where you have sung, more or less You know, up until that point, I hadn't had a life. I'd been searching, been on the road.

He is also the founder and chairman of the Small Kindness charity, which initially assisted famine victims in Africa and now supports thousands of orphans and families in the Balkans , Indonesia, and Iraq.

In following an address by Islam to students at London's Kingston Polytechnic now Kingston University , where he was asked about the fatwa calling for the killing of Salman Rushdie , author of the novel The Satanic Verses , Islam made a series of comments that appeared to show support for the fatwa.

He stated "He Rushdie must be killed. The Qur'an makes it clear — if someone defames the prophet, then he must die. Subsequently, he commented in a interview on Australian television that Rushdie should be killed and stated he would rather burn Rushdie instead of an effigy.

Immediately following the September 11 attacks on the United States, he said:. He appeared on videotape on a VH1 pre-show for the October Concert for New York City , condemning the attacks and singing his song "Peace Train" for the first time in public in more than 20 years, as an a cappella version.

He also donated a portion of his box-set royalties to the fund for victims' families and the rest to orphans in underdeveloped countries. On 21 September , Islam was on a United Airlines flight from London to Washington , travelling to a meeting with US entertainer Dolly Parton , who had recorded "Peace Train" several years earlier and was planning to include another Cat Stevens song on an upcoming album.

The following day, he was denied entry and flown back to the United Kingdom. A spokesman for Homeland Security claimed there were "concerns of ties he may have to potential terrorist-related activities".

Some people give a political interpretation to charity. We were horrified at how people were suffering in the Holy Land. Islam believed his inclusion on a "watch list" may have simply been an error: a mistaken identification of him for a man with the same name, but different spelling.

On 1 October he requested the removal of his name, "I remain bewildered by the decision of the US authorities to refuse me entry to the United States".

Two years later, in December , Islam was admitted without incident into the United States for several radio concert performances and interviews to promote his new record.

Rumours which circulated after made me imagine otherwise. He sued for libel and received an out-of-court financial settlement from the newspapers, which both published apology statements saying that he had never supported terrorism and mentioning that he had recently been given a Man of Peace award from the World Summit of Nobel Peace Laureates.

However The Sunday Times managing editor Richard Caseby said that while there was an "agreed settlement", they "always denied liability" and "disagreed with Cat Stevens' lawyers interpretation", but took a "pragmatic view" of the lawsuit.

Yusuf responded that he was "delighted by the settlement [which] helps vindicate my character and good name. It seems to be the easiest thing in the world these days to make scurrilous accusations against Muslims and, in my case, it directly impacts on my relief work and damages my reputation as an artist.

The harm done is often difficult to repair", and added that he intended to donate the financial award given to him by the court to help orphans of the Indian Ocean earthquake and tsunami.

On 18 July , Islam received substantial undisclosed damages from the World Entertainment News Network following their publication of a story which claimed that the singer refused to speak to unveiled women.

His solicitor said "he was made out to be 'so sexist and bigoted that he refused at an awards ceremony to speak to or even acknowledge any women who were not wearing a veil ' ".

The accusation that I do not speak or interact with ladies who are not veiled is an absurdity It's true that I have asked my manager to respectfully request that lady presenters refrain from embracing me when giving awards or during public appearances, but that has nothing to do with my feelings or respect for them.

Islam simply requires me to honour the dignity of ladies or young girls who are not closely related to me, and avoid physical intimacy, however innocent it may be.

My four daughters all follow the basic wearing of clothes which modestly cover their God-given beauty. They're extremely well educated; they do not cover their faces and interact perfectly well with friends and society.

Islam gradually resumed his musical career in the s. His initial recordings had not included any musical instruments other than percussion, and they featured lyrics about Islamic themes, some in spoken word or hamd form.

He invested in building his own recording studio which he named Mountain of Light Studios in the late s, and he was featured as a guest singer on "God Is the Light", a song on an album of nasheeds by the group Raihan.

In addition, he invited and collaborated with other Muslim singers, including Canadian artist Dawud Wharnsby. Realising there were few educational resources designed to teach children about the Islamic religion, Islam wrote and produced a children's album, A Is for Allah , in [] with the assistance of South African singer-songwriter Zain Bhikha.

The title song was one Islam had written years before to introduce his first child to both the religion and the Arabic alphabet.

He also established his own record label, "Jamal Records", and Mountain of Light Productions, and he donates a percentage of his projects' proceeds to his Small Kindness charity, whose name is taken from the Qur'an.

On the occasion of the re-release of his Cat Stevens albums, Islam explained that he had stopped performing in English due to his misunderstanding of the Islamic faith.

I relied on heresy, that was perhaps my mistake. Islam has reflected that his decision to leave the Western pop music business was perhaps too quick with too little communication for his fans.

For most it was a surprise, and even his long-time guitarist Alun Davies said in later interviews that he hadn't believed that his friend would actually go through with it after his many forays into other religions throughout their relationship.

In , after repeated encouragement from within the Muslim world, [] Islam once again recorded " Peace Train " for a compilation CD, which also included performances by David Bowie and Paul McCartney.

He performed " Wild World " in Nelson Mandela 's concert with his earlier collaborator, Peter Gabriel , the first time he had publicly performed in English in 25 years.

The proceeds of "Father and Son" were donated to the Band Aid charity. Keating's former group, Boyzone , had a hit with the song a decade earlier.

As he had been persuaded before, Islam contributed to the song, because the proceeds were marked for charity. On 21 April Islam gave a short talk before a scheduled musical performance in Abu Dhabi , United Arab Emirates, on the anniversary of the prophet Muhammad 's birthday.

He said:. There is a great deal of ignorance in the world about Islam today, and we hope to communicate with the help of something more refined than lectures and talks.

Our recordings are particularly appealing to the young, having used songs as well as Qur'an verses with pleasing sound effects Islam observed that there are no real guidelines about instruments and no references about the business of music in the Qur'an, and that Muslim travellers first brought the guitar to Moorish Spain.

He noted that Muhammad was fond of celebrations, as in the case of the birth of a child, or a traveller arriving after a long journey.

Thus, Islam concluded that healthy entertainment was acceptable within limitations, and that he now felt that it was no sin to perform with the guitar.

Music, he now felt, is uplifting to the soul; something sorely needed in troubled times. With this performance, Islam began slowly to integrate instruments into both older material from his Cat Stevens era some with slight lyrical changes and new songs, both those known to the Muslim communities around the world and some that have the same Western flair from before with a focus on new topics and another generation of listeners.

After I embraced Islam, many people told me to carry on composing and recording, but at the time I was hesitant, for fear that it might be for the wrong reasons.

I felt unsure what the right course of action was. I guess it is only now, after all these years, that I've come to fully understand and appreciate what everyone has been asking of me.

It's as if I've come full circle; however, I have gathered a lot of knowledge on the subject in the meantime.

In early , Islam released a new song, entitled "Indian Ocean", about the Indian Ocean earthquake and tsunami disaster. Proceeds of the single went to help orphans in Banda Aceh , one of the areas worst affected by the tsunami , through Islam's Small Kindness charity.

At first, the single was released only through several online music stores but later featured on the compilation album Cat Stevens: Gold.

But now I've done it all and there's a little space for me to fill in the universe of music again. The Adopt-A-Minefield charity, under the patronage of Paul McCartney, works internationally to raise awareness and funds to clear landmines and rehabilitate landmine survivors.

Islam has credited his then year-old son Muhammad Islam, also a musician and artist, for his return to secular music, when the son brought a guitar back into the house, which Islam began playing.

This documentary film features rare audio and video clips from the late s and s, as well as an extensive interview with Islam, his brother David Gordon, several record executives, Bob Geldof , Dolly Parton , and others outlining his career as Cat Stevens, his conversion and emergence as Yusuf Islam, and his return to music in There are clips of him singing in the studio when he was recording An Other Cup as well as a few excerpts of him on guitar singing a few verses of Cat Stevens songs including "The Wind" and "On the Road to Find Out".

Accompanying him, as in the Cat Stevens days, was Alun Davies , on guitar and vocals. In March , Islam finished recording his first all-new pop album since The performer is noted as "Yusuf", with a cover label identifying him as "the artist formerly known as Cat Stevens".

The art on the album is credited to Yoriyos. Islam actively promoted this album, appearing on radio, television and in print interviews.

This is the real thing When my son brought the guitar back into the house, you know, that was the turning point.

It opened a flood of, of new ideas and music which I think a lot of people would connect with. Also in November , Billboard magazine was curious as to why the artist is credited as just his first name, "Yusuf" rather than "Yusuf Islam".

The second name is like the official tag, but you call a friend by their first name. It's more intimate, and to me that's the message of this record.

For a lot of people, it reminds them of something they want to hold on to. That name is part of my history and a lot of the things I dreamt about as Cat Stevens have come true as Yusuf Islam.

The answer was that his breakthrough album, Tea for the Tillerman in , was decorated with Islam's painting of a peasant sitting down to a cup of steaming drink on the land.

He commented that the two worlds "then, and now, are very different". His new album shows a steaming cup alone on this cover.

His answer was that this was actually an other cup; something different; a bridge between the East and West, which he explained was his own perceived role.

He added that, through him, "Westerners might get a glimpse of the East, and Easterners, some understanding of the West.

The cup, too, is important; it's a meeting place, a thing meant to be shared. For those people looking for Cat Stevens, they'll probably find him in this record.

If you want to find [Yusuf] Islam, go a bit deeper, you'll find him. He later appeared as the final act in the German leg of Live Earth in Hamburg performing some classic Cat Stevens songs and more recent compositions reflecting his concern for peace and child welfare.

To promote the new single, Voormann redesigned his famous Beatles Revolver album cover , drawing a picture of a young Cat Stevens along with himself and Harrison.

On 5 May , Islam released Roadsinger , a new pop album recorded in On 15 August, he was one of many guests at Fairport Convention 's annual Fairport's Cropredy Convention where he performed five songs accompanied by Alun Davies , with Fairport Convention as his backing band.

A world tour was announced on his web site to promote the new album. He was scheduled to perform at an invitation-only concert at New York City's Highline Ballroom on 3 May [] and to go on to Los Angeles, Chicago and Toronto, as well as some to-be-announced European venues.

The tour took him to Dublin, where he had a mixed reception; subsequently he was well received in Birmingham and Liverpool, culminating in an emotional performance at the Royal Albert Hall in London.

In June he toured Australia for the first time in 36 years, [] and New Zealand for the first time ever. On 2 March , Islam released his latest song, "My People", as a free download available through his official website, as well as numerous other online outlets.

On 1 April , he launched a new tour website yusufinconcert. In May , Moonshadow , a new musical featuring music from throughout his career opened at the Princess Theatre in Melbourne, Australia.

The show received mixed reviews and closed four weeks early. In October , Islam was nominated for induction into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame for his work under the Cat Stevens name this was his second nomination — the first being an unsuccessful nomination in In this episode he talks about his difficulty in entering the US.

On 15 September , Islam announced the forthcoming release on 27 October of his new studio album, Tell 'Em I'm Gone , and two short tours: a November 9-date Europe tour and a December 6-date North America tour, the latter being his first one since Part of his newly launched fundraising campaign for child refugees, YouAreNotAlone, the song was inspired by a trip to southern Turkey's camps for Syrian refugees.

The string of 12 dates roughly coincides with the 50th anniversary of his first single, I Love My Dog , and would "feature a limited run of stripped down, introspective performances.

The London show took place at the Shaftesbury Theatre , only a block away from where Yusuf grew up. On 15 September , he released his fifteenth studio album, The Laughing Apple.

In July , Yusuf signed with BMG Rights Management , which will publish his songwriting credits worldwide and distribute nine of his studio albums.

On 28 May , Yusuf announced his next album, Tea for the Tillerman 2 , and it was released on 18 September , celebrating the 50th anniversary of the original LP.

Tea for the Tillerman 2 is a re-imagining and re-recording of the songs from the earlier album, [] with updated interpretations and arrangements.

On 25 September , Yusuf appeared on the BBC's Desert Island Discs [78] Yusuf is one of a small number of guests that have chosen their own music as a desert island choice, however he picked the Stevie Wonder Motown hit 'As' for his favoured choice in front of his own recording, if only one could be saved.
